We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
A superb interview. Thank you to the producers and Maggies for bringing it to my attention. Although I might disagree that Faith has an important part to play in happiness (I think although such brainwashing is socially cohesive it leads to much misery, destruction and an inability to think for oneself) I agree with the other 95% of the points made. The Welfare State is alright up to the point of safety net but once it passes into the acceptable realm of routine handouts it does become totally destructive of happiness. The author alludes to the control of the Democratic Party in the USA by the MSM. Are the Republicans even electable in the current situation? My final comment regards the central parameter of the book - "non-Latino White". A rapidly diminishing proportion of the Western world both in terms of genetics but also culture and religious culture.
We are disappearing so quickly we will soon become irrelevant in terms of the nation states.
